TTHS tennis teams split home match

The newly-formed Tahoe-Truckee High School tennis team has gotten off to a successful start this fall, with the girls’ team taking a close victory, 11.5-11, against Manogue Monday night at Tahoe Donner.

Things came down to the last match Monday, with Lindsey Borghello coming through for the Wolverines.

Each player, both in singles and doubles, won at least one set.

Kim Hoopingarner won all three of her sets, while Heather Thym won one of hers.

Girls’ coach Laura Borghello said she was pleased with the results.

“Compared to two weeks ago, they’ve made so much improvement,” Borghello said. “You can tell they’ve been practicing and working on their game.”

In doubles play, the teams of Megan Powers/Kimmy Fasani-Britton, Jenny Shaffer/Lindsey Brown and Jamie Hawley/Kristy Davis each won a set.

The boys weren’t quite as successful, losing 9-4.5, but Aaron Borghello and Nick Ratto pulled out a 6-2 win, while Chris Schindler and Matt Charles won a tiebreaker 7-6.

Schindler later teamed up with Ryan Stock for another tiebreaker 7-6 win.

“They did really well,” said boys’ head coach Kristin Ratto. “Some of the guys out there had big service motion.”

Ratto said the matches give the players incentive get out and work on improving their game.

The next match is today, with the girls taking on Sparks at Tahoe Donner, beginning at 3:30 p.m. Admission is free and the public is invited.
